On October 2 Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson shared a picture of himself on Facebook and Twitter holding up a handwritten sign that read "I Am A Christian." At the bottom of the picture was drawn an ichthys, a fish symbol used by early Christians.

The picture was a response to a mass shooting on October 1 on a college campus in Roseburg, Oregon. The killer, Christopher Mercer-Harper, reportedly targeted victims because of their Christian faith.

Dr. Carson’s post went viral, and now well-known Christians Franklin Graham and Sarah Palin have posted their own tweets and signs. Rev. Graham sent out a tweet with the hashtag #IAmAChristian and a quote from Matthew 10:28-31: "Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul." On October 3 Sarah Palin went on Facebook to post a photograph of herself holding up a sign that reads "I am a Christian."
